About The Hobby Place
The Hobby Place is Mysore’s one of a kind Creative Studio and Hobby Center, offering a variety of classes and workshops for the young & old, for the aspiring, experienced and the recreational art enthusiasts in a spacious, calm and beautiful ambience! We have on board a team of highly talented and enthusiastic artists who have years of experience teaching various art forms for different skill levels.
Apart from the training facility, we conduct special events and workshops; custom activities and private lessons. We also undertake orders for one of a kind painting, customized pottery, a mural, kitchen ware or a handcrafted gift.
In keeping with our philosophy to renew and re-create awareness for dwindling art forms, we conduct regular classes in classic yet local art forms such as Mysore art, Tanjore art and Ganjifa. We also invite ancestral artists from various parts of the country to conduct workshops in rare dying art forms such as Chowki/Kinnal art from Koppal district, Madhubani artists from Bihar and the tribal Warli artists from Maharashtra, to name a few.
Our studio is open to independent artists and artisans to showcase and sell their works, as an attempt to encourage and sustain them. In the near future, we are also looking for partnering with local NGO’s to provide vocational training to the underpriveleged . Our clay are chemical free and most other hobby materials are hand made by rural women in India.
At the Hobby Place, we aim to make it fun and easy for an individual to pursue a hobby for her/his holistic development. Our mission is to educate, produce, promote and preserve great work, to be socially responsible and to have fun doing it all!
We believe, there are friends to be made, artists to be encouraged, culture to be exchanged and above all, fun to be had..
If there is anything you would love to learn thats not offered at The Hobby Place currently, let us know, we will try our best to make it accessible to you.
If you are an artist and are interested in collaborating with us, call or email us
We look forward for you to join us in this journey..
